Why you should background check your babysitter

background check on your potential babysitter. By conducting a nanny background check, you can find out whether your potential nanny has a criminal record or accusations of wrongdoing. You can also verify previous employment and possibly even certifications they have earned. While it’s not a 100% guarantee that your child will remain protected, it’s a large step towards securing their safety. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services publishes annual reports on the number of child abuse cases. In 2002, the report showed that 44,000 cases were perpetrated by people other than parents, foster parents, guardians or relatives. That means this group was mostly composed of daycare providers and babysitters. In the 2005, the number had grown to more than 46,000. These statistics alone offer motivation to perform nanny background checks. It really is a case of better safe than sorry, and a quick background screening will go along way to making you feel a lot happier about leaving your children at hom with someone else.]]>
